Live Traffic Blog: Jan. 17

Here is a live traffic blog for your Wednesday morning commute.

9:00 a.m. Very bad weather conditions are continuing to cause issues on the roadways this morning. The Bayway is still closed. On the causeway we got a new accident there near the intersection of Addsco road and we're looking about a 4 to 5 mile backup both directions on the causeway in Mobile by Mobile Police including eastbound I-10 between Michigan and Broad the eastbound I-10 exit ramp to Duvall airport and Schillinger airport Azalea Three Notch and Schillinger Northbound I-65 between Spring Hill and Moffett Hillcrest at Cedar bend, Three Notch at Schillinger and Overlook at Cody.

8:25 a.m. The Bayway continues to be closed with ice on it both directions and the George Wallace tunnel was also closed. The causeway is open but you're looking at about a 6 Mile backup headed westbound towards Mobile from the Eastern Shore and delays on the interstate trying to get off there at the Bayway. A number of accidents in Mobile including new ones involving injuries Northbound I-65 between government and Airport, I-10 eastbound between Broad Street and Virginia Street, Three Notch and Schillinger I-65 Southbound between Highway 45 and Moffett Road those are the latest accidents being work by Mobile police.

7:55 a.m. The Bayway continues to be close with weather conditions the causeway is the only way to get for mobile towards Baldwin County and vice-versa a new accident there on the causeway as well in front of addsco Road in Mobile and number of accidents being work by Mobile Police including fowl River Road and EIP airport and Hillcrest Ziggler and Cody North I-65 between Cottage Hill Road and Airport Boulevard eastbound I-10 between Broad Street and Duval Street and accident involving injuries as well lots of other roadways also how's Mel McVay Spring Hill at Moffett and Cottage Hill and Blue Ridge Boulevard expect delays at all of these locations.

7:25 a.m. Weather conditions causing heavy delays this morning including the closure of the Bayway the Cochran africatown bridge and the Delta Bridges there and North Mobile towards Baldwin County heavy delays on the causeway which is open but a new accident there eastbound on the causeway in front of Addsco Road about A6 or 7 Mile delay there westbound on the causeway coming from the Eastern Shore in Mobile and number of accidents on I-65 Northbound between Moffet and Highway 45 that one involving injuries also Cottage Hill at Lyndale Drive Spring Hill at the I-65 Southbound where car went off into a ditch Belle River Road in Dauphin Island Parkway Saint Stephen's Road Hancock Street and a hit-and-run crash there and and injuries Air Pro and an accident involving injuries and three Vehicles near airport and Hillcrest Drive.

6:50 a.m. Not a good morning to be out on the roadways with weather conditions as they are. The bayway continues to be closed down both directions right now has does the Cochran africatown Bridge the Delta bridge is there on I-65 also closed down from Baldwin towards Mobile County and vice versa as well. For a full list of areas that are closed go to our website and wkrg.com but accidents right now including a disabled truck there on the on-ramp for Moffitt Service Road I-65 Southbound accident Cody at Zigler government and I-65 Southbound or they're trying to move a disabled vehicle hotel at South University where a car left the roadway and involves injuries Northbound I-65 between Dauphin Street in Spring Hill multiple cars have slid off the roadway also sing delays into the Bankhead tunnel coming from the causeway which actually is open but I do expect that delay with ice on the roadways there .

6:30 a.m. The inclement weather is definitely affecting our morning commute if you don't have to get out on the roadways this morning it might be a good idea not to we have a lot of bridges that are iced over including the bay way right now the Cochran africatown bridge and the Delta Bridges as well we also have points along I-10 and I-65 that we've seen issues with ice on the roadway a number of accidents including an issue where a truck is stuck there on the on-ramp from Moffett Road Service Road getting onto I-65 Southbound accident Cody at Ziegler Boulevard government and I-65 Southbound ramp a disabled vehicle blocking the roadway Old Shell at South University of car went off the roadway involving injuries Northbound I-65 between Dauphin Street in Spring Hill Boulevard multiple cars that have slid off the roadway there's also an 18-wheeler that has traffic backed up blocking the entrance to the westbound Bankhead tunnel which is open however an 18 wheelers that are coming from Baldwin County towards mobile really don't have really don't have anywhere to go. is the Bankhead tunnel was the only way open and they won't fit inside those so expect delays coming from Baldwin County towards mobile even if you try to use the causeway which is basically you're only route.

6:00 a.m. With the icy conditions we've seen this morning this will definitely affect your morning commute if you don't have to get out on the roadways in the next few minutes in like maybe an emergency situation probably want to stay home for a while we've got plenty areas that are closed including many bridges I-10 Bayway is closed right now so is the Cochrane africatown Bridge the Delta bridges are closed in the Dauphin Island Bridge as well many overpasses also see ice on them along I-10 and I-65 even though there sand on them you still have to use Extreme Caution we've got a number of accidents including I-65 Northbound between Cottage Hill and Airport another one between mopping and Highway 45 Snow Road and Breckenridge there's an accident involving injuries there an accident on the on-ramp there to form water Street towards eastbound I-10 trying to get into the George Wallace tunnel now the eastbound Wallace tunnel is open the causeway is open which is where people will be directed coming out of the George Wallace tunnel but if you don't have to get out of the roadways this morning I encourage you to stay home for a little while.

5:50 a.m. With weather conditions as they are were seeing a lot of road closures this morning including the bayway you're not going to be able to use that because of ice on it. Now the causeway is open but even if you still have to use that I don't encourage if you don't have to get out on the roadways this morning to not really chance it. Getting into the George Wallace tunnel on I-10 headed eastbound is open however we just had an accident they're coming off of Water Street getting into the tunnel so that's going to slow people down as well. Other accidents in Mobile on I-65 Northbound between Cottage Hill and Airport I-65 Northbound between Moffett and Highway 45. Snow Road and Breckenridge as well. The Delta Bridges is closed the Delta britches on I-65 are also closed the Cochrane africatown Bridge also close and now the Dauphin Island Bridge their Highway 193 also is close with ice on the roadway.

5:30 a.m. With weather conditions as they are there's really not much of a commute here on your Wednesday morning. If you don't absolutely have to get out on the roadways this morning might be a good idea to stay home. The Bayway is closed, the I-65 Delta Bridges from Mobile towards Baldwin County are closed also the Cochrane bridge is closed as well. I-10 to I-65 while technically open may still not want to use those even though they have put sand over the bridges we've seen some accidents this morning including I-65 there between Cottage Hill and Airport Boulevard many other Bridges throughout both County's many other Bridges throughout the counties of any other bridges are iced over as well so use extra caution and be very careful if you have any of those this morning this includes over towards Pensacola where the Three Mile Bay Bridge and the Perdido Bridge are also closed due to ice.

5:10 a.m. Looking at your early Wednesday morning commute honestly there really isn't much of one of them probably shouldn't be unless it's an emergency situation you probably want to just stay home for at least for a little while because of the weather we have a lot of iced over Bridges including the areas that are shut down. Like I-10 the Bayway is shut down right now the Cochran bridge is closed I-65 at Delta Bridges their North Mobile towards Baldwin County is closed I-65 also has some ice over overpasses now there's some areas where they have put sand down but continue to avoid getting out on the roadways at least in those areas as well because it's still have some ice on them including an accident there Northbound I-65 between Cottage Hill and Airport Boulevard and an accident involving injury Snow Road at Breckenridge as well we also have a power outage right now in the Baldwin County area Highway 181 and Highway 104 in the Fairhope area so a lot of traffic lights are out as well.
